This October, the Grand Pier will be opening its doors after dark for the return of the terrifying halloween event; Halloween Unfairground.

With brand new scare zones, rides and bars, the event promises to be bigger and better than ever!

The event will consist of live scare zones, as well as access to all the rides and attractions, and some additional surprises along the way.

Live Scare Zones

Puppet Museum – New for 2019!

Every lonely little boy needs some toys to play with, and you look like the perfect plaything!

Enter the lair of the infamous Puppet Master, a ruthless killer who delights in turning his victims into his own personal toys. Can you escape without becoming part of his collection?

Cirque du Fear

This used to be The Greatest Show on Earth…

Prepare to enter a world of magic and illusion where nothing is quite what it seems. This once-great illusionist has a way of making people disappear, but will you be able to find your way back to reality?


The Freak Show has been cancelled. Abandoned by their once-great showman, and left alone in the dark, the freaks have turned wild and dangerous.

After a lifetime of being stared at, they’re out for revenge now: if you look at them, they’ll take your eyes.

The only way through their lair is not to see anything at all…

Crazy Circus

A night at the circus has taken a terrifying turn as killer clowns roam the Big Top. You won’t be laughing when they come for you…

House of Horrors

Climb aboard the Ghost Train and be transported to a world of darkness where things really do go bump in the night. All manner of ghouls, zombies and creatures of the night are lurking in the black around every corner – will everyone who boards get off again at the other end?

Street FEARtre - New for 2019!

A travelling troupe of sideshow novelties has descended into madness and mayhem, led by a sinister Ringmaster who has them all under his spell…

Alongside our terrifying live scare mazes, we will have an immersive street theatre team providing entertainment (and maybe even a few extra scares) throughout the night.
